The Master of Science program in Cybersecurity: Network and Computer Security offers students a cutting-edge curriculum in the field of cyber security. The program has been developed in conjunction with local experts in both industry and government, and provides students with a rigorous foundation of coursework that prepares them for management and technical positions in the fields of cyber security research and IT security management.
The program is designed for students who have the equivalent of an undergraduate degree in network and computer security, computer science or systems, electrical engineering or a related field; however, students without a background in one of these areas may enter the program by completing appropriate pre-requisite coursework under the guidance of a faculty adviser. Students with appropriate professional experience in information technology may also be eligible for program admission.
The program accommodates both full-time and part-time students. Full-time students can complete the program within an 18-month period. Part-time completion will vary based on total number of credits taken each term. A program of study will be developed with the program coordinator that responds to student needs and the department’s plan for course scheduling.
